Event #3: €5,300 Pot-Limit Omaha

Selbst Doubles Through Mattila

Vanessa Selbst

Vanessa Selbst opened to 4,000 only to find Ville Mattila three-bet to 16,000. It folded back to Selbst and she called.

"How much do you have behind?" asked Mattila

"Like thirty," replied Selbst.

The dealer brought out a flop of {8-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{6-Spades} and Selbst checked. Mattila announced a pot sized bet and Selbst quickly said all in for her last 33,500, prompting the two to turn over their hands.

Selbst: {K-Spades}{J-Hearts}{10-Spades}{8-Clubs}
Mattila: {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{9-Hearts}

The turn was the {10-Clubs}, giving Selbst two pair. The river completed with the {4-Diamonds} and Selbst's hand was ultimately the best one, awarding her a nice double up that brought her to roughly 100,000 in chips.
